    While You Were Sleeping

    ★★★★

    The very definition of a guilty pleasure: a ludicrous sitcom premise with horrible music, but I have a soft spot for it due to a cast that commits to the cornball material and delivers great line readings. (Best in class: Peter Gallagher's "Do I like Jell-O?".)

  • Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

    Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

    ★½

    Roland Emmerich wishes he could dream up something as stupid as "The Van Allen Belts are on fire!!!". The Captain Ahab undercurrents only intriguing dramatic spark.

    ★★

    Third-rate paperback writer bullshit pretending its not. Ace cinematography from Roger Deakins.

    The Incredible Shrinking Woman

    ½

    A pastel-drenched trainwreck. Too dopey and shrill to take seriously as any sort of satire; whether it be of consumerism, chemicals in products, or late Seventies culture. Network for retards.
